Abstract:

"June 2013 will be remembered across Alberta as the month of the Great Flood which resulted in the loss of four lives, displaced thousands from their homes, disrupted hundreds of businesses, and caused significant damage to private and public property, land and infrastructure. The immediate responses of municipal, provincial, and federal governments and particularly the people of Alberta to help those impacted by these flood events have been exemplary. However, as the recovery efforts begin to wind-down, the daunting task of rebuilding our communities looms large on the horizon. The rebuilding program must be based on a solid understanding of the confluence of events that caused the flood, the likelihood of recurrence, the efficacy of the proposed mitigation strategies, and the impact of these strategies on the entire South Saskatchewan River Basin. ... There is a series of logical, science-based, proactive actions that can be taken to strengthen our capacity to respond to these types of natural disasters. The purpose of this paper is to outline these specific actions to inform the policy discussions currently underway in committee rooms across the province"--
